Found in the picturesque Southern Highlands town of Bowral where the famous Sir Donald Bradman grew up, the Bradman Museum is a state-of-the-art high-tech Museum that encapsulates cricket's history from its earliest origins through the Bradman era and World Series Cricket to the modern day and the introduction of T20. The Bradman Foundation, a non-profit charitable trust, was established in 1987 with the full support of Sir Donald Bradman AC to promote cricket as a valuable cultural and sporting force within the community. The Foundation prides itself on being the heritage custodians of Australian cricket. It preserves the heritage of the game while delivering Sir Donald Bradman’s commitment to the future of the game through development at youth level and within the wider community. The Foundation also often hosts exhibition matches and special events on the historic and picturesque Bradman Oval. A special focus by the Foundation is the development of youth through cricket.
